I need help getting organized. House overrun with supplements &herbs.how can I get a system where I remember? Topic: How to write a check over one thousand
June 16, 2019 / By Kay
Question: to take them..I have accumulated over 500 bulk herbs and made many herbal tinctures and have [probably over a thousand or more bottles of supplements and herbs I got over the years. I rarely take them and I want to, but how can I remember to take them a few times a day and how many..I feel like picking some bottles that might help some of my ills and just going through them until I run out and then try the next bottle. bad habits of buying and taking a few days and then quitting. I am trying to self improve in three areas as I am in a rut ..negative thinking, organizing my house and keeping it better and eating better and taking some of my supplements. I see my health declining and need to get serious on some of my flaws and areas I am weak in..any suggestions Ion these supplements..maybe a way to organize them..they are all over the house. and even in storage some of them..I need to know good ways to remember to take them CONSISTENTLY as this is what I lack in life as well as a way to store them that works for this size item and organize them so I know what I have..thanks

use plastic boxes or plastic drawer containers from the store or try to find narrow shelves about the depth of medicine cabinet shelves. Gather all you supplements from where they are and alphabetize them, combining like bottles half full to save space. If they are in a drawer or box, it will be necessary to label it or take them out. To avoid this, get those circle stickers found next to file folder labels at the store and put a sticker on the top of each bottle and label it. For the bulk herbs, store them in equal size glass bottles in a wine type rack or use plastic ziplock baggies and label them, storing them in alphabetical order in boxes..be sure to put the first and last herb in the box on the top so you know what is in them. For your tinctures, put them ones you will be taking in a lunch box and take at the right time of day 10 minutes apart transferring them to another lunch box when you are done and then repeating at the next meal. For the supplements, pick out about 10 of the most needed ones and put them into pill container boxes or baggies labeled breakfast, lunch, dinner and bed and put them where you will see them each day or even carry them on a fanny belt until you are in the habit of taking. When you start running out go through the drawers and pick the next ten replacements either the same herbs/vitamin or different ones...when you run out of the pills in the bottle for the baggies, substitute of the next group of supplements till you are done with them..do not buy more unless crucial until you use the ones you have. Be aware if they are older the potency will be reduced and maybe take double dose of an herb as they are generally safe. Reward yourself each day if you took the supplements or even do a chart or tablet where you check off after you took it and if you do not forget any that week, do a special thing for yourself. Write down all the health problems and why you need to be consistent..and read this each day and how doing this will make you feel better. Begin telling yourself that you have a good memory, will improve your habits and health and love taking your supplements. Say I never forget my herbs and supplements. I will use my knowledge of alternative health to fix me and am grateful for these supplements to retrain your subconscious mind and because being grateful is healthy. also be sure to reprogram your mind on cleaning and negative thinking. Some people put on a rubber band and sap it each time they say a negative and replace it with three positives to remind themselves and gain awareness of the bad habit. Once you get organized, always put things back and do a game where each time you enter a room, you pick up or do five little things or one big one to help keep up with it. Best of luck.

First of all, if anything is over a year old, dump it. Most supplements and herbs lose their effectiveness if stored too long and some can be even become harmful. So get rid of most of it. Don't assume that herbs and supplements will solve all your problems. Take a basic multivitamin, get sufficient calcium and maybe consider fish oil supplements. Eat a balanced diet, drink plenty of water, get on a consistent exercise program and forget the rest. It won't solve your problems and it has become nothing but clutter. Work with a nutritionist to come up with a program that is effective for you if necessary. You don't need all those bottles of stuff.

Janie I have to agree with the first poster. Get rid of everything that is over l year old. Another thing for you to consider. All these nutritionals need to be taken in balance with other things. Being that you are not a scientist you probably won't get the mixtures just right so would never really appreciate all of the benefits that each has to offer when taken correctly. I would recommend, as the above poster mentioned that you get on one very high quality supplement that covers all of the basics. Something that contains live enzymes, essential fatty acids, minerals and vitamins. Then eat a well balanced diet with lots of water and you should be fine. No need to remember to make up a bunch of different things, just do these things every day. The key is, eat well dailly and take the same supplement every day and lots of water (1/2 your body weight in fluid ounces each day) The water helps to flush out toxins and helps control weight. In fact I challenge you to find an overweight person who drinks 1/2 their body weight in water each day.........you won't find many.

Charlie Originally Answered: What are some herbs and essential oils I should get for my cabinet?
Homeopathy does use herbs, look up the actual definition on wikipedia. Conversely, "holistic" has nothing to do with herbs, although traditionally most holistic practioners prefer them. The two ideologies work together quite well. Some of the hardest working multitasking herbs are as follows: echinicea - immune booster, helps with allergies, acne, promotes cell growth and healing aloe vera - antibacterial, antiseptic, antimicrobial, promotes cell growth and healing, when used internally is a cleanser kelp - can remove toxic metals from the body, promotes cell growth and healing, regulates metabolism gingko biloba - antioxidant, helps with memory, promotes good circulation chamomile - immune booster, calming effect, antimicrobial black cohosh - regulates hormones, can increase libido, prevent mood swings/pms etc (this stuff really works, let me tell you!) things you may already have in your pantry: cinnamon - relieves intestinal gassiness garlic - lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, antioxidant, may prevent cancer ginger - helps with upset stomach, indigestion, or nausea, promotes good circulation before you begin using herbs it's always a good idea to research thoroughly to make sure you have no health issues that would contraindicate the herb you would like to use. For example, kelp regulates metablism by stimulating the thyroid gland, so people with thyroid issues should not use it.
